What did YOU get for Christmas

12-25-2008 07:25 PM by DocK16 | 32 comments »

Okay boys and girls, couple months ago everyone posted their “wish list” when the government anounced their economic stimulus check (return of our own money). On somewhat the same note; give it up, what did Santa bring you for your shop? I guess I’ll go first: a hot iron to mark/brand all my projects. Yeah it was a wish list item… the way Merry Christmas morning everyone.

Sorry Folks. I pulled this post because of the bad composition it had. I should not have rushed it to meet a deadline.

Our toy making operation was published in the newspaper again. It seems that the article was published in Delaware Wave on December 17, 2008, Delaware Coast Press in December 18, 2008 and in the Daily Times in December 23, 2008 It is truly an honor to be a part of this group of dedicated workers who meet each Wed of the year to make toys for kids. They are distributed to different charities in the area for their distribution to the children of their client families. We make about 120...

Playroom #1: Its no Castle...

12-25-2008 05:04 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

but I do believe my daughter will love it when she sees it for the first time tomorrow morning. I have been spending a lot of time recently in our basement recently. My wife and I decided instead of going and spending a ton of money on Christmas gifts we would finish our basement (I think the gifts would have cost less :) ) But anyway we now have a place for our daughter to play and we can move a lot of stuff out of our upstairs living room. We just finished setting the room up for her...

Ponderings #25: Another Year Older

12-25-2008 12:35 AM by Tomcat1066 | 7 comments »

Almost a year ago, I came to LumberJocks for the first time. In that time, I’ve learned a bunch and met a lot of cool people. I’ve developed a great deal, despite my few projects. Since it’s Christmas Eve, I thought I’d take a moment and reflect on some things I’ve come to understand. 1. There’s More Than One Way To Skin A Cat I’ve heard this saying all my life, but no where is it truer than in woodworking. Think of something like a dado. ...

would this work?

12-25-2008 12:32 AM by AaronK | 7 comments »

Been tossing around an idea for a nearly minimalist bookcase idea. i think it might work, but i wouldnt load it with anything too heavy on all but the bottom shelf (or the very center of the middle!). I think, also, that the corner joints of the top and middle shelves would be strongest as through dovetails. the two sets of parallel beam supports in the back would be notched/dadoed to accept the shelves, which might be good partially notched as well. one missing dimension in the figure is the...

Turning slippery slope #1: Starting to turn

12-24-2008 10:13 PM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Yep – you read that right. I’ve been hesitant to turn anything because I’ve never really liked that “spinny” thing. But a friend recently has convinced me that turning would probably be a good thing for me to learn since small projects can be done quickly and are not physically demanding and I can learn it’s simply steps pretty quickly. I’ve already got the Jet mini lathe and most basic turning tools. I took my Christmas money today and signed up f...

My Rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest Chapter 2

12-24-2008 09:58 PM by FlWoodRat | 5 comments »

Well, it’s Christmas Eve and Mother Nature provided us with some good weather. As such, that meant a day in the FlwoodRats Al Fresco Work Shop (AKA Driveway) working on some more stock for my rendition of T-Chisels Blanket Chest. This one will be a toybox/blanket chest for my Grand Daughter Yvette. Having my table saw on a mobile base really helps. Here are my Jointer and Planer Here is my stock for the raised panels. Today was spent rough milling them to 1-3/8” ...
